Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Majid bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Alumni Association at the University of Dubai, headed by Sheikh Mohammed bin Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum, in cooperation with Beit Al Khair Society, is hosting a ‘charity Suhoor’ event for financially challenged students under the slogan ‘Charity empowers Education’. 

The event, which will take place on 12 of Ramadan, July 9, 2014, will feature a religious lecture by Sheikh Dr. Omar Abdul Kafi on the importance of extending educational support to needy students. 

Dr. Eesa Bastaki, President of University of Dubai, called for generous contributions to support students who are facing financial difficulties in continuing their studies.  Active participation by generous individuals, organizations and companies will enable needy students to gain entry to professional jobs, attain social advancement and become active members of the community, Dr. Bastaki said.

General Manager of Beit Al Khair Society, Mr. Abdeen Taher Al-Awadi said: "The charity initiative, organized by the Alumni Association of the University of Dubai, reflects the spirit of solidarity that prevails in the UAE society, and the noble values the new generations have inherited from their elders.”   

He added: “We at Beit Al Khair are keen to support this initiative in line with our role in charity work and our commitment to financially challenged students. Through our Tyseer project, we join hands with any good initiative that aims to support needy university students and provides them with a reassuring atmosphere that enables them to realize their educational goals.” 

Ms. Amina El Marzak, Manager of Student and Alumni Affairs at the University of Dubai, said: “There are a number of students in the university who are unable to pay their fees due to circumstances beyond their control. The Alumni Association with the support of our partners will help such students to complete their education and enter successful careers and businesses. Big thanks go to our valued sponsors (Ghenej Jewellery and Intercoil International) for their contribution and financial support”, she added.
